A Russian warship has reportedly entered the eastern Mediterranean Sea on Friday and was heading toward the area where two United States Navy destroyers launched an attack on a Syrian airbase in retaliation for this week’s gruesome chemical weapons attack against civilians, Fox News reports.
According to the report, the Russian frigate, Admiral Grigorovich RFS-494, crossed through the Bosphorus Strait “a few hours ago” from the Black Sea, according to a U.S. defense official.
The Admiral Grigorovich is armed with advanced Kalibr cruise missiles.
Also Friday, one of the American destroyers that launched the missiles into Syria started heading to an undisclosed location to rearm.
“The Russian ship armed with cruise missiles Kalibr will visit the logistics base in Tartus, Syria,” the source told Fox News, according to TASS.
